you seem to have a rather peculiar history of event, in my
recolection the government made no such assertion, rather the government
insisted on a self regulation approach. the constitution of auda derives
its power from the corporations act, not from her Majesties or John
Howards blessings or the ACA.

unless I am mistaken neither the registrant nor the registrar agreement mention that 
domains are owned by the government.

in fact the registrant agreement says there is no propriatery interest
specifically and presumably only to prevent secondary markets.

a simple change to the registrant agreement appears to be all that is called for.

regardless my feeling is that a Liberal government isnt overly, whats the right
word, antagonist maybe, towards markets? shall I check the Liberal party
web site or shall we agree here about likely government direction?

I am somewhat baffled and perplexed since you seem to the be the EFA
representative, and the EFA is supposed to defend online liberty and freedoms,
yet here you are absolutely reluctant and in fact quite denigrative of
liberties and freedoms perticularly.

since I am a sponsor of EFA perhaps you care to clarify just what it is 
I am sponsoring and why EFA is inactive about pushing the causes of
online liberty and freedom? and just since when has government involvment been
a disinsentive to EFA action?
